Oh Sunflowers…

Standard

Glorious sunflowers. You only have to be on my blog for about 4 minutes to realize that I love sunflowers—

They’re so happy. Just giant happy smiling flowers. And. I can manage to make something into a sunflower nearly every year. ☺️☺️

This year is no different.

Artistically inked gives us the PERFECT flower to make into sunflowers. And it’s so simple. Such a beautiful stamp set that’s super versatile and user friendly. You can use bold colors for bright, happy images—. Fall colors for sunflowers— muted colors for sympathy. It’s truly a perfect stamp set. Pair it with a set of sentiments and you can make any card you need.

September is the entry way into fall. And I’m ready. Bring on fall. My most favorite season (I do love me some summer cause it means school is out— but fall is the season I appreciate for its fundamental qualities. Heehee)

Simple Stampin’ February

Standard

Soooo…. I have to come clean about the 2022 calendars. I waited until The. Absolute. Last. Minute. to make them. Literally, an after-Thanksgiving Hail Mary move of taking a couple of days and ignoring ALL other responsibilities to get these done. I do make these to sell–for our annual street fair–so it’s not a simple ‘one and done’ kind of thing–there are many to make. So, as a way to make everyone think this was planned, I decided to embrace a ‘return to my roots’ and go back to simple stamping with these calendars. Meaning, not a lot of coloring, not a lot of embellishments, the literal embodiment of the #simplestampin’ movement. Imagine my excitement when I realized I ordered Artistically Inked (does that happen to you–you order a set and then forget you have it?)

Artistically Inked is just a stunning stamp set. And, I am one of those people who cannot seem to master the ‘oh so easy’ alcohol ink water-cooling technique. This set takes ALL the guesswork out of it. It’s super easy to use, and the outcome is just amazing. Few swipes of the stamp and ink and bippity-boppity-boo we have February!

Decided to not use the traditional hearts for February—but the flowers still work! And, these flowers won’t die! Marvelous Magenta and Granny Apple Green bring these cheerful blossoms to life.

I happen to have a couple of my calendars left– Fill in the form below if you’d like to order one! I will connect with you!

Happy Valentines!
